This Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake has a gorgeous presentation, and is always a crowd-pleaser!
Non-bakers...here is your cake! You don't have to bake to serve a wonderful dessert! This Chocolate wafer icebox cake is super easy and nobody needs to know just how easy. The crisp wafer cookies are layered with sweet whip cream which in turn softens the cookies to perfection as they chill.
As with my Chocolate Cream Pie, the only difficult thing about this recipe is waiting!
These chocolate wafers are usually found in the cookie section. Or in the baking section by the graham crackers crusts at some grocery stores. You can also order them from Amazon or I have also bought them at Walmart. But if you cant find them thin Oreo cookies work too.
Smear a couple of tablespoons of whipped cream on the plate to lay the cookie roll on. It helps hold them still so you can frost the top.
I usually use sliced almonds for the topping, but you can use whatever you have on hand.

Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake
An easy and decadent no bake cake your guests will go crazy for.
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (9 ounce) package chocolate wafer cookies
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- Sliced almonds
- Place the bowl and whisk of a stand mixer in the freezer for 10 minutes. If you are not using a stand mixer place the beaters of a hand held mixer in the freezer.
- In the chilled bowl beat the cream on high until soft peaks form. Add in the sugar and vanilla and continue mixing until stiff peaks form. DO NOT over beat
- Spread 3-4 tablespoon of whipped cream in a long strip on a platter. Spread 1 tablespoon whipped cream onto each wafer, and repeat until you have used all the cookies. Then lay the cookie roll on the strip of whipped cream on the platter. This helps so they don't slide. Frost with remaining whipped cream.
- In a small bowl add the chocolate chips and heat in the microwave on 30 second increments, stirring after each time until melted. Drizzle with chocolate and almonds, cover refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight.
- Cut into diagonal slices so you get those beautiful chocolate stripes. Serves 6
- ***Note*** 4 cups of whipped topping (such as Cool Whip) can be substituted for whipped cream if desired. No need to add the sugar and vanilla.

I love this recipe. It’s so easy to make and tastes so wonderful. It’s a perfect dessert that doesn’t take too long to make. Also you can decorate the top with whatever you like. I usually break up some wafers and sprinkle over the top of the cake. Or you can put cherries or strawberries on top.
You really can’t go wrong with this cake.
Don't use Coolwhip, it's not real cream.
Not all grocery stores carry them but make sure you check in both the cookie section and baking section. Safeway and Raleys do not carry them in my area. I know Walmart has them, you can also order online from Amazon or Walmart. I have direct links if you need them on the recipe page. Hope this helps Eileen 🙂
Where did you buy the chocolate wafers? I cannot find them in the grocery store.
Merry Christmas to you Rita 🙂
I do not add sugar to the whipped cream
The wafers and cream are sweet enough.
I dress the top with maraschino cherries for a holiday .
This looks awesome and looks pretty easy to make. Looking forward to trying it out for the holidays.
Thank you 🙂 🙂
